Wits Plus lecturer Dr Dennis Laxton, who will be presenting the online Logistics and Supply Chain Management practice course, tells us that this course will provide a theoretical overview of logistics and the supply chain, but that the real beauty will be the ability to apply these principles and practices to the business environment.

Packed with gems like lean thinking, the kaizan business philosophy, the seven wastes, and tools like statistical analysis and management of the supply chain, everyone will find value to apply in their business logistics and supply chain.
